Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year. It was a pleasure to see many of you at our Meet the Teacher and Curriculum Nights. It is our goal as educators, to promote enthusiasm and excitement about learning in a safe environment. If at any time you have concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to call or schedule an appointment with my staff or myself. Communication is essential for student success.
Thank you for the support and patience you have shown us in helping us to keep our students safe. Your help in the parent pick-up area and patience as we learn the procedure is greatly appreciated. Because we are a walking school, we want to encourage students to walk or ride their bikes to school with friends. Students are remembering to use the crosswalks and are walking their bikes on campus. We will continue to make student safety a priority.
Please be sure to take a few minutes to review the family Handbook with your child(ren). You will find safety information attached. Please review it as well.
